Redundant job thread. Please ignore.

Jobs! We have them. We probably hate some aspects of them.

Come gripe! Come brag! Come seek resume help or advice!

Get interviews, get lemurs
Get job, get pandas

So this morning I got a super emergency email from someone about needing AV stuff set up (my new job has me being the AV point of contact and I do helpdesk stuff when AV is slow). Must be in place for 9 AM meeting! Message was sent to us at 9:15.

I get there, everyone looks pissed at me for some reason. The room is way smaller than the minimum size we recommend for a projector due to throw distance to get a decently sized image. I set it up anyway. With where the presenter is sitting, I need to run cables between people. People who don't move out of the way so I can run the cables even when asked to please scoot back like a foot for a few seconds.

So what could have been done in... 3 minutes? Took like 15.

Fuck those people. Right in the nose.

    So I am a military veteran with a host of health problems at the age of 26. I have to go by the VA hospital downtown this morning. Lot of traffic, causes me to be 15 minutes late, for the first time in my 2 years at this company.

    I work for one of the largest Oil&Gas companies in the world as a Contract Specialist, so very tough environment at times. I get called into supervisor office an hour later and get the lecture that "I can't be late and it creates a negative perception, in these market conditions everyone needs to be pushing to work more then their 40 hours." ...I worked 12 hours yesterday and a total of about 55 last week...FML
